Based on the novel by horror maven Brian Keene, "Ghoul" is a coming-of-age story exploring the darkness that lurks inside small-town life.
It is the summer of 1984 when a teenage couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery. Twelve-year-old Timmy ("Modern Family"'s Nolan Gould) and his best friends, Barry and Doug, have grown up hearing stories about a sinister ghoul that haunts the cemetery and they begin to wonder if the horrific legend might actually be real. Timmy and his friends are forced to put their friendship to the ultimate test when they dig up long-buried secrets, facing their personal demons as well as the one hiding underground.
"Ghoul" is written by William M. Miller and directed by Gregory M. Wilson. Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino ("The Woman") serve as producers for MODERNCINÉ.
